We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be a little daunting. As you visit a new community of people you could be wondering a variety of things. However, we’d love welcome you. So, please come with all your questions and we’d love to try and answer them. Our hope is you will find this to be a place you can be comfortable from the very first moment you meet us.
As you plan to visit with us on Sunday you may have questions like: What is a church? Where do I go? Where do my kids go? What will the music be like? What is the teaching like? What will people be wearing? To help you, we’ve tried to give some brief answers to most of these things below and you can also check out our short video on what a typical Sunday at Terra North Adams feels and looks like.
There is ample off-street parking at 2 primary City lots. The first is behind our gathering space, which is the same parking lot behind Public Eat + Drink and Mountain One Bank. From this lot, you can follow the Terra Nova signage and enter through the building’s main corridor. Additionally, directly across Main St is another large City Parking lot.
4 Years - 10 Years
Our Terra Kids classrooms are located at 85 Main St, Suite 200C. This is directly upstairs above our worship space at The Green. Currently, we have volunteers that run a Sunday program for children from 4-years old to 10-years old during our 10am service.
When you come on Sunday morning we all gather together as a large family in The Green for opening worship and our children as then led to the Children’s space during the teaching time and remainder of our service.
Checking in to Terra Kids
Checking your kids into Terra Kids is at a kiosk in the lobby in The Green. We take the safety of your children seriously and we utilize a computer-based check in system called Planning Center to help us. If it’s your first visit, you’ll want to give yourself an extra few minutes to check your kids in properly. After your first visit, it will be much easier and quicker.
All of our volunteers are background checked, screened, and trained as well. If you’d like more information on our TN Kids policies and procedures, please our Operations Director, Elizabeth Hill.
Partnering with FBC North Adams
At Terra we love our role of coming alongside families in partnering with parents by helping to equip them to be the primary influencers in their children’s spiritual development.
We believe our youth are a vital part of the church and we want to provide venues where they can grow, serve the church and their community, while journeying together in faith alongside their peers.
As a brand new church plant, we currently do not have the resources & staffing to lead our own Youth Programs here in North Adams. So, we’ve partnered with our friends at First Baptist Church North Adams and have our youth combine efforts.
If you have youth aged children and are interested in participating in this, please email Pastor Paul with questions and find out how you can get connected.
